Logistics challenging for Jets first three weeks, but . . .

People talk about how tough the beginning of the Jets’ schedule is, starting on Monday Night Football in San Francisco, and then having to travel to Tennessee in Week Two, followed by a Thursday home opener against New England.

It’s not as tough as it seems.


Because Tennessee and New England aren’t likely to be very good, and the NFL knows that, even though they would never say it publicly. The strength of these teams probably factored into the schedule decision-making. Both teams’ quarterback situations aren’t great right now, even if the Patriots sit project QB Drake Maye early in the season for journeyman Jacoby Brissett. Tennessee’s Will Levis is wildly inconsistent with his accuracy and decision-making. Both teams have rookie head coaches.

So while on paper, the Jets’ early schedule looks tough based on the travel the first two weeks, and then a short turnaround for their home opener, how tough are those games in Weeks 2 and 3 truly going to be?

Yes, San Francisco on the road to start the season is tough, but the two games that follow aren’t.

So even if the travel scenario isn’t ideal, there is no excuse for the Jets to lose to Tennessee or New England.
